Statement by Australian Democrat's leader Senator John Coulter regarding Senator Powell's resignation

After discussions with all other Australian Democrat Senators, it is with regret that I accept Senator Powell's decision to resign. She has contributed significantly to the party and parliamentary debate.

From time to time members of political parties, including sitting members, resign. This has happened in the Democrats several times in the past. After these occasions the party continued to prosper and I am confident that the Australian Democrats will continue to perform better and better electorally .

We have very recently released a 100 page "Getting to Work" document which sets out in detail, and for the first time, how Australia can be moved toward greater ecological sustainability while, at the same time, increasing employment and reducing foreign debt.

Recent polls show a significant upturn in our support.

The National President, Mrs Heather Southcott, has also issued a media release on this subject today.
